Default Dell XPS M1710

What's up everyone.

I've gotten some good advice here in the past so I figured I'd stop by again. My battery I currently have for my XPS M1710 is older and its life its only about 35-45 minutes now before I have to plug it back in. I've briefly browsed the internet for a new battery but I don't know too much about them. Basically I'm looking for a nice new battery, something better than the original stock one that I currently have. I guess you could say a long life battery.

Any suggestions?

What specifically should I look for in determining which battery is of higher quality and will last longer?

Does Amp Hours give an idea of how long the battery will last (ex. 4.4 vs. 6.6)?

Anything else I should know?

Thanks in advance.
